The EGGS Foundation hosted a discussion on “Women in New Zealand Politics” last night, to help raise funds for the L Block redvelopment project. Facilitated by Rawdon Christie - TV presenter, journalist and an EGGS parent – our guest speakers spoke openly and powerfully about their experiences and journeys in politics. Jeanette Fitzsimons, former co-leader of the Green Party; Chlöe Swarbrick MP, Spokesperson for Education & Youth; and Tessa Berger, Auckland Council Elected Member - all EGGS alumnae - gave us insight into the women behind the politics, the defining moments in their careers and their influencers.

It was an exceptional evening and we thank the community for supporting EGGS.
